Lotus Temple, New Delhi
The Bahá'í House of Worship is popularly known as the Lotus Temple because of its flower-like shape. The temple has attracted more than 70 million visitors since it opened in 1986, making it one of India's most visited attractions.
Though formally built as a temple for members of the Bahá'í faith, it welcomes visitors of all religious denominations. Designed by Iranian architect Fariborz Sahba, the structure consists of 27 free-standing "petals" arranged in clusters to form a nine-sided temple.
